I can add two more Bald Eagles to the tally. While driving back to Berlin along Route 16, Reinhild and I had two adult eagles flying past - close together, very possibly a mated pair. I can't give an exact location, but it was only a few miles north of Berlin, just north of a large bay or lake in the Androscoggin River that's always littered with ice-fishing huts whenever there's ice on the river.
Several people reported a Red-bellied Woodpecker at the same location where we had the grosbeaks, and didn't you hear a Pileated Woodpecker near Lake Umbagog?
